Most of you have probably seen this, if not enjoy!
Good Luck on your Finals!!
'Twas the night before finals and all through the college,The students were praying for last-minute knowledge.
Most were quite sleepy but none touched their beds, While visions of essays danced in their heads.
Out in the taverns a few were still drinking, And hoping that liquor would loosen their thinking
In my own room, I had been pacing, and dreading exams I soon would be facing.
My roommate was speechless, his nose in his book, And my comments to him drew unfriendly looks.
I drained all the coffee, and brewed a new pot, No longer caring that my nerves were shot.
I stared at my notes, but my thoughts were all muddy; My eyes went a blur, and I just couldn't study.
"Some pizza might help," I said with a shiver, But each place I called refused to deliver.
I'd nearly concluded that life was too cruel, With futures depending on grades earned in school.
When all of a sudden our door opened wide And Patron Saint "Put-It-Off" ambled inside.
His spirit was careless, His manner was mellow, But summoning effort he started to bellow:
"What kind of student would make such a fuss To toss back at teachers what they toss at us?
On Cliff Notes! On Crib Notes! On Last Year's Exams! On Wingit and Slingit, and Last-Minute Crams!"
His message delivered, he vanished from sight, But we heard him laughing outside in the night:
"Your teachers have pegged you, so just do our best... Happy Finals to All, and to All, a good test."
